This document describes the Network Discovery Protocol (NETDIS), a 
protocol that provides a way to broadcast information about the 
network service accessible through the access network where the 
information is broadcasted. This allows several service providers to 
share the same access network. The public WLAN access network is 
particularly targeted by this protocol. As a result a mobile terminal 
listening NETDIS announcements discovers the list of Service 
providers (Virtual WLAN operator) supported by the WLAN it is 
currently attached.

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.

implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
